Simple Crystal Illusion

About this design:

This is a very simple design, yet it's one of my best-sellers! I think the fact that you can dress up or dress down with it and that it'll go with more than one outfit make it a favorite. :D


Swarovski crystal, sterling silver, Beadalon wire

    Thanks! Deb, it’s very simple to make, simply crimp the beads in place on the wire! :D I learned this technique from a book. :D
